Josh Groban’s “All That Echoes” Leads Album Sales Race

Last-minute buzz stemming from Sunday’s Grammy Awards telecast could crowd the race, but based on early tracking, Josh Groban’s new release “All That Echoes” is positioned for a number one debut.

According to Billboard, Groban’s new album is pacing to move about 130,000 copies in its opening week. Though potentially enough for a number one debut, it would mark a decline from the 190,000 debut mark for 2010’s “Illuminations.”

Tim McGraw’s “Two Lanes of Freedom” (tracking for 90,000) and “NOW 45” (on pace for 80,000) also debuted this week.
